Inflammasome-mediated host defenses have been extensively studied in innate immune cells. Whether inflammasomes function for innate defense in intestinal epithelial cells, which represent the first line of defense against enteric pathogens, remains unknown. We observed enhanced Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium colonization in the intestinal(More)
Intestinal epithelial cells provide an important colonization niche for Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium during gastrointestinal infections. In infected epithelial cells, a subpopulation of S Typhimurium bacteria damage their internalization vacuole, leading to escape from the Salmonella-containing vacuole (SCV) and extensive proliferation in the(More)
